Ukraine is home to the fastest growing church in Europe. The youth of Ukraine are very open.  Josiah Venture has a strategic opportunity to help by modeling healthy discipleship of young people through the local church in a culture that is responding to God‘s call.

A special Ukraine Crisis Fund has been set up by Josiah Venture and is being used to care for the refugees we are personally assisting, to finance evacuation efforts through our partner churches in Ukraine, and to pay for supplies and food that is being distributed by these Ukrainian believers.
